Mainspacing

I'd like to have a mainspace page about this. What should I do? Are you planning on updating this? Nescientist (talk) 17:01, 4 June 2020 (UTC)

It can almost be mainspaced.
But I want a version of the transfer nav template with lines at least in the middle column... But I have to get to work. If you wanna just do that real simple and you think it looks fine, I'd be happy for the assistance. I was also think of maybe changing it to look roughly like
Time Capsule: I<>II
Dual-slot mode/Pal Park: III>IV
Poke Transfer/Relocator > IV/V
Pokemon Transporter: V/I VC/II VC>Bank
Bank: Transporter/VI/VII>VI/VII
GO Park: GO>PE
Pokemon HOME: Bank/PE>VIII
(I.e., a little more strictly one row per method.) So if you'd like to try that... Anyway, g2g. Tiddlywinks (talk) 14:21, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
But HOME is missing its section? I would need to gather info, so there's no "real quick" for me, sorry. Same for your suggestion. But it's not like it's exceptionally urgent anyway. Nescientist (talk) 15:13, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
I don't know them enough either to write anything without referring to other pages first. Honestly, my intention was pretty much to mainspace it and let people make those updates. (I didn't say as much, but the one thing I'd like currently is a (good) TOC-like table for the top of the page (like on Type). Not meaning I'm looking to have it link the sections; just a good and quick/immediate overview.) Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:18, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
I'm not gonna be able to wikify this today (and I'm hoping you could if you like it), but I think I'd go for hubs and labelled arrows. Presented to you by professional pixel artist Nescientist.

It shows which is one-way and which is two-way, and you'd have the liberty to add limitations (like from HOME to VIII). Not sure if you plan to edit the template, but as long as it's protected, I certainly won't.. Nescientist (talk) 13:24, 7 June 2020 (UTC)
Any progress? Feel free to just disregard my idea if you have other plans. Nescientist (talk) 10:45, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
I've had to focus on other things. (Sorry, I missed the ASCII art previously.) If you can develop code for that (maybe just post it here), I'll take a closer look. Tiddlywinks (talk) 14:10, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
The ASCII art was supposed to be quick and dirty, but already took considerably longer than expected. (However, it is the best visual presentation I know of, and I'll look exactly here when I want a quick reminder.) If you said it was exactly what this article needs, and won't do it yourself for some time and noone else will either, then maybe I can be bothered. But wikicoding it isn't my idea of fun, you're better at it then I am (as are others), and there's probably better things for me to do right now, sorry. Nescientist (talk) 10:46, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
